Only 10 Medical Labs In Nigeria Produce Reliable Results, Says Ninas by References: 5:08pm On Jun 06
Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria (MLSCN), has confirmed the claims of the Nigeria National Accreditation System (NiNAS) that Nigeria has only 10 medical laboratories that produces reliable and trusted test result.

NiNAS Director General, Celestine Okanya, had disclosed the information in a presentation in Abuja, during stakeholders meeting on strengthening partnership on laboratory services in Nigeria, stating that the situation has been responsible for increased cases of wrong diagnostic results.

He stressed the need for a strong relationship between government agencies, pathologists and others in laboratory services to ensure effective and efficient laboratory services in Nigeria.

He said: “We need laboratories that can carry out molecular and other testings so that whether it’s viral base bacteria or whatever, we can have the capacity to test for them. We need to prepare for challenges that we may have in the future.

"It’s frightening that Nigeria has only 10 standard and accredited laboratories across the country. For instance, we have 3,000 laboratories and only 10 are accredited. We equally have over 7,000 testing and calibration laboratories but less than 50 are accredited.”

Okanya said the situation is not only a medical emergency but an economic emergency. We need to strengthen our medical and testing laboratory system so that we can be able to drive our economy and protect the lives of our people.

“If Nigeria, with a population of over 200 million people can rely on 10 laboratories for reliable medical examinations, then there is need for urgent action from the government and stakeholders. There may be laboratories that can issue results across the country but they have not been tested and assessed, to confirm their competence.

MLSCN Registrar, Tosan Erhabor, in his presentation said the statement of Celestine Okanya is not an indictment on MLSCN because accreditation is not mandatory but voluntary. “So, advocacy is what is required to enlightened the people and make them submit to accreditation process. We have started doing that and positive result is expected soon.

“It’s not long the issue of mandatory accreditation came into force in Nigeria. Before now, the requirement is just to get a laboratory, equip it and start business. But that has changed.”

The Chief Executive Officer, Bloom Public Health, Prof. Chimezie Anyakaora, in his remarks, stressed the need for collaborative effort to strengthen laboratory system in Nigeria, pointing at what COVID-19 did to Nigeria.

He said: “COVID-19 has showed the world, especially developing countries, the need for quality and well equipped laboratory that would produce reliable test.

“We learnt lot of things, particularly as regards quality testing and well equipped laboratories. COVID-19 has made people know the importance of laboratory and reawaken their consciousness on having laboratory that is of quality, equipped and reliable.

“Wrong diagnosis have resulted in deaths and permanent injuries to health. Any health intervention without solid laboratory foundation is like a wasted resource/investment.”

He suggested that patriotic Nigerians should promote quality laboratory and health care services, commending NCDC for championing the campaign for quality and standard laboratory. “We want the standard maintain across board.”

This government would rather expend its energies on banning Twitter and pampering terrorists. So unfortunate for Nigerians and I pity them tremendously

That’s what you get when you keep graduating 1000s of microbiologist and biochemists every year and you turn them to lesson teachers, Instagram vendors, skit makers and Uber drivers.

Godforsaken government.

By the way if you ask most men the best way to get and keep a woman they will tell you it is woman. And it has been proven times without number that money can't get you women. What can get you a woman's love and loyalty is good sex. Nothing else will make a woman loyal to you apart from mind blowing sex. Have seen many handsome and rich men that their wives still cheats on them. I even have a married lady that keeps calling me to visit bcus of the good times we had last year before she married. The ability to give a woman mind blowing and shattering sex is not an ability that some few selected men are born with but it is something that could be learned.
May I introduce you to this wonderful book that teaches you how to take a woman to a whole level of ecstasy like she's never experienced before! Not even when she is self pleasing herself privately. This book will help you discover the powerful, closely guided secrets that you will not find in any other book...secrets that most men(and even women) don't even know exists. secrets that will give you the power to leave your partner satisfied beyond anything that she has experienced before.

Why won’t people want out of this Zoo? Those opposed to people seeking sovereign states, what does Nigeria have or have to offer to anyone? Last in anything positive, yet ranks first in all things negative.

Yes for the politicians and elite of course...but the average Nigerian living hand to mouth who is against the disintegration of Nigeria, they can’t name 5 decent points as to contrary. Well, mental slavery is a real thing.
